Upper at Home

Another quick one tonight:

Warm Up - 12/12 x 12k Swings
Snatches - 5/5 x 16k, 20k, 24k, 24k, 24k
Overhead Press - 5 x 20k, 30k, 40k; 3 x 40k, 40k, 40k
Renegade Rows - 5/5 x 16k, 16k
Dynamic Pinch - 5, 5, 5

Overall my session was lame. I had to pull back on the snatches due to skin that threatened to tear. The set of 5 with 40k on overhead press drained me for the others. I also felt like I was using my upper traps to help press, instead of the lower traps. On renegade rows my left elbow felt unstable, causing me to skip the last two sets. I was also weak on the dynamic pinch.

Waiting to start lifting until 7:30 did not help me, nor did being at work until 8pm last night. I am having fun, but things are out of balance. Our current project goes live this month. I am going to make a point to get on a more reasonable schedule following that deployment.

My gym membership expires this month. There is a yoga studio a few miles from my house, on the way to work. As I have been failling to attend to active recovery, I may give it a shot. I'll need to check pricing and class times.

I need to clear the equipment I don't use out of my gym. I wish selling it wasn't such a hassle.
